Consultant and Specialist Orthodontist  | Clinical Lecturer in Orthodontics

Mrs Charlotte Dugdale completed a degree and Masters in Chemistry in 2002 and went onto study dentistry at the University of Manchester in 2005. After several years of dental foundation training, she went onto to specialise in Orthodontics, gaining a distinction in her MSc (Clinical Orthodontics)  and she was awarded the Alan Hilton Prize for her orthodontic research. Mrs Dugdale completed her consultant training in and around the North West.

She currently works as a consultant Orthodontist at Royal Blackburn Hospital and as a Senior Clinical Teaching Fellow at the University of Manchester. She also works in private orthodontic practice in Cheshire. 
At the University of Manchester she teaches, trains and supervises UK and overseas orthodontic trainees, as well as examining for the University and Royal College of Surgeons England and she is an elected member of the British Orthodontic Society Consultant Orthodontic Group. Charlotte is involved in research and she has had papers published in the Journal of Orthodontics and British Dental Journal, along with other peer reviewed journals. 
Charlotte's keen interest in the surgical aspects of dentistry has led to clinical curiosity in the application of orthodontic mini-screws as an adjunct to orthodontic treatment. This has developed over the years and she now uses mini-screws in her day to day clinical practice and values the benefits of their application.
